The UAB Medicine Echocardiography Laboratory performs medical tests that use highfrequency sound waves called ultrasound to produce an echocardiogram, or echo. An echo provides detailed images of the heart’s structure and function and of the heart’s valves. When coupled with sound waves known as Doppler technology, the echo can be used to evaluate the speed of blood flow, the direction of blood flow throughout the heart, and any problems with blood flow, such as a leaky valve.
